The purpose (my 2 cents) is to highlight what projects are under
governance and those that are not.

Maybe we should call those not under governance as "community"
projects, aggregate these under say community.openstack.org also run a
second gerrit instance (community-git.openstack.org ?) so the
separation is clear and distinct.
